York University Memo: Travel Info

Posted on


Travel Information from York University's Coronavirus Website

On March 16, the Government of Canada outlined additional measures related to entry into Canada based on the advice received by public health officials to limit the spread of this pandemic and to provide support to Canadian travellers. The Government of Canada strongly urged Canadians to follow these recommendations:

  • All Canadians avoid non-essential travel outside the country until further notice.
  • Canadian travellers should return to Canada via commercial means while they remain available.
  • All travellers to Canada must self-isolate for 14 days upon entry.

The University continues to strongly recommend that faculty and contract faculty, staff and students avoid all non-essential travel outside of Canada until further notice.

Beginning March 18th, foreign nationals from all countries except the United States are prohibited from entering Canada. The measure would not apply in designated exceptional circumstances, including to air crews, travellers arriving in Canada in transit to a third country, Canadian permanent residents, diplomats, or immediate family members of Canadian citizens.

The above ban includes any international student who is currently abroad on a Canadian University international mobility experiences including exchanges, placements, work experience or coop.
